I don't like Ralph but I don't dislike him either. He is actually a pretty good character. In fact, both the guest characters Ralph and Danica have very good default stats. If any track is giving you trouble, try racing with those two characters instead. You might be surprised how well they perform.

I don't hate him, but he's my least used character overall. Strangely enough when I did decide to use him last night I was quite impressed with how well he handled, I'm beginning to think he's the best character in the game.
We all need to admit that character appearance is everything. If the character isn't pleasing to look at chances are you're not going to use him/her unless they have exceptional high stats that is hard to overlook.
I see people using Gum, but I don't see people using Beat. I see people using Sonic but I don't see people using BD.Joe. I see people using MeeMee but I don't see people using Amigo. I see people using Nights and Reala but not Danica. AGES but not Gilius or Ralph.
I love the movie but I dislike the voice actor on the game version of Ralph. He sounds so stupid :/
Disney was being cheap in letting John C. Reilly voice Ralph in other stuff aside from the movie and it's promotion. They got an impersonator to handle the small stuff like the Wreck it Ralph Wii game and this one.
